Colorado State University and the wider community are invited to celebrate the variety and quality of research and creative scholarship by students, faculty, and staff in CSU’s College of Health and Human Sciences. This year, CHHS Research Day takes place Monday, March 6, at the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom. 

CHHS Research Day will open with a poster show in the morning, displaying research posters and creative scholarship produced by faculty, staff, post-doctoral fellows, and students in Health and Human Sciences. There is no requirement to RSVP to attend and view the poster session – and all are invited to attend. After the poster showcase, the afternoon will consist of a keynote address, six-minute lightning talks given by eight faculty members representing each unit of the College, as well as talks from three graduate student Dean’s Fellows. Please RSVP for the speaker presentations. The event concludes with an awards ceremony for the winning poster presenters – no RSVP required.

This year, the keynote address will be given by Gerald Buckwalter, chief innovation officer for the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Buckwalter also oversees the Future World Vision initiative, a forward-leaning strategic assessment and visualization project where ASCE is creating a virtual and interactive computer model to assess potential built environments 50 years into the future.

At noon, Buckwalter will speak on the topic “Envision the Future,” and lunch will be provided. Please RSVP on the Research Day website by Feb. 24. The keynote lecture is supported by the Joseph Phelps Endowed Chair in the Department of Construction Management and the Mary Scott Lecture Series in the College of Health and Human Sciences.

This year’s CHHS Research Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate excellence in research at CSU and allows for those attending to learn from experts about various facets of healthy living. This includes education, nutrition, the built environment, apparel design, exercise, disease prevention, and relationships with the common goal of improving physical, mental, and social well-being of individuals, families, and communities.
